Intelligence consultant Aaron Stipkovich tells Current TV’s John Fugelsang that he was falsely imprisoned in Egypt. He was trying to get some tourism in before his flight back home when was arrested while taking pictures of the pyramids, and he says he still doesn’t know what the charges were against him.
“I thought they were joking when they asked me to go into the cell. It was basically a … 4′-by-5′ box, concrete box,” he says.
The experience has left Stipkovich with a bleak view of Egypt’s post-Mubarak future under President Mohamed Morsi: “I would say to anyone considering going to Egypt right now: Avoid Egypt with every fiber of your being. Until they can prove that they’re going to treat visitors — anyone for that matter — ethically and morally, stay away.”
